UK police release one suspect

Marwa Asha, 27, a suspect in the failed London-Glasgow terror attacks, has been released without charge, according to Scotland Yard. The Staffordshire resident was arrested on June 30 along with her husband Dr Mohammad Asha, 27, after a high-speed car chase on the MI6 motorway.
The police continue to question Dr Asha, Dr Sabeel Ahmad and two other junior doctors in the hope of getting the “missing” links to sew up the cases against them. However, with the investigation into its 12th day already, doubt is creeping over whether the police will get enough evidence to nail them.
It is learnt that the police have only until Saturday to question Sabeel if he isn’t charged by then. They can apply to extend his detention by a maximum 13 days.
The Australian police’s decision not to seek an extension to the detention of suspect Dr Mohammed Haneef, Sabeel’s cousin, seems to affirm the view of a senior diplomat here that the police still do not have much to hang their case on.
